Have You Thought About it?
If ever.yone at Saint Mary’s
was asked to write a definition of
honor there would probably be
many answers. We all know its
meaning. On the other hand, if
we were asked “What does honor
mean to you?” most of us would
think a long time before answer
ing, for everyone has an entirely
different concept of honor.
Our personal honor is something
that belongs to us alone. It is a
heritage which onlj^ ive can up
hold, and only we can allow to
degenerate. If we keep our honor
spotless, what a personal Joy it
gives to US; hoiv clean it makes.us
feel; how true to ourselves. Just
as if we allow our honor to fall
from its level, it iiersonally hurts
us; it lowers our character; it
detracts from our personality.
Honor is above all a personal
trait, but like so many personal
traits, it affects others. A girl to
whom her honor is very important
naturally influences her friends,
just as a girl to whom honor
means absolutely nothing pulls
down her friends to her level.
Thus one girl is capable of under
mining an entire student govern
ment ; she is capable of upsetting
a carefully worked out honor sys
tem ; she is capable of lowering
To have a perfect honor .sys
tem, all these girls are to be elimi
nated. We must have girls who
display pride, wisdom, and un-
selfishne.ss in their attitude toward
our school; we must have girls
whose greatest desire is to see our
honor system solid to the roots,
we must hav(> girls whose jiersonal
honor comes first.

from thanksgiving vacations and
now its already time to go home
for Christmas everyone seemed to
have a wonderful time lots of peo
ple brought things back -with
them niartha bryce and anne
amoiiette brought furs fairfax
brought a piano practice slip com
pletely blank for the holidays and
ibbie brought a wisdom tooth ann
adkersoii says she never re
alized how wonderful lynchburg
could be didnt fleeeie say the
same thing last year noiv to
a different subject logan vaught
says that odysseus was a mix
ture of the lone ranger spencer
tracy and general maearthur but
i dont think he is that cute i like
achilles theres a lovely yellow tree
behiiu! west rock and a red one
by the chapel there are all colors
of leaves on the ground and i
painted three in art class we are
very lucky to have colored trees
on our campus they dont have this
kind in china and they dont have
aiij’ books either so no one has to
read pickwick papers maybe they
dont have juniors over there ex-
ce[)t in the fonn of sons which is
just what saint marys needs would
.vou rather have multicolored
leaves or boys on the campus i
know youre going to tell me that
it was the so))homoi-es who read
I'ickwick and not tlie juniors but
i couldut think of a joke about
sophomores speaking of boys i
think that bobette has looked aw
fully happy lately when grendel
moore asked what is the most
widely read book today somebody
said forever amber just think one
senior was heard to say i wont
tell her name cause i dont want
to get her into trouble if we take
posture class we dont have to
dress for gym ive have it only
once a week its easy and besides
i think my posture could be im
proved i want to send some red
leaves for politeness to little
richard stone junior for the gen
tlemanly way he seats the girl
next to him at the table on sun-
days my deepest sympathy goes
to logan whose goldfish died dur
ing the holidays she thinks some
one put epsom salts in the water
it was given a burial at sea camps
fish also died question of the week
did mr moore purposely wire the
radiator so it eouldnt be turned
on he was the only one who wore
a coat to class that day evervone
else froze i havent thraived' out
yet the meanest people i know
are the teachers who gave tests
the day we came back from
thanksgiving did you know that
mr osthoff knits his sweaters all
by himself im going to ask him
to make a red one for a certain
boy at state i wish we could open
belles meetings to the public im
sure they would pay to see and
hear the many witties in there
such as the verbal combat over
whose going to interview the
celebrities i said that i would take
all the cute males and the others
could have evervone else did vou
know that william masselos" is
coming back this year theres a
picture of him on third floor holt.
